So I'm back with part two of my review of John Frieda's Full Repair range. Yesterday I blogged about the shower range which is the shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioner. If you missed my post yesterday, I'll just re cap what the Full Repair range is about: it's a range of products which are inspired by products you can get from the salon. They aim to transform the feel and look of damaged and over worked hair.
Today I'm going to be looking at the styling range, so I'm not going to waste any time let's get to it!
Style Creator Heat Activated Styling Spray*: This spray is probably my favourite product from the whole range. It aims to create natural movement and long lasting hold to any style. It also is a heat protectant which is great for someone like me who is partial to heated rollers! So what I do with this is I spray it on towel dried hair and then blow dry my hair and style it. I've noticed that it helps my hair keep it's style, especially when my hair is curly, the curls last a lot longer which is so good! I forgot to use this the other day and I noticed a difference in how long my hair style lasted which is pretty impressive! Definitely my favourite product from the range as it's a spray that actually works!
Protecting Root Lift Foam*: Everyone knows to achieve hair Cheryl would be jealous of you need a good foam/mousse. I'm always wary of mousses though as they can make your roots feel very sticky and hard. Now don't get me wrong this isn't a product I'd recommend using every time you wash your hair, it's again a good product to use when you have a specific event to go to and you want big hair! This foam aims to add a weightless, flexible and lasting lift at the root. I tend to apply a handful to my roots and massage it in. Then once my hair is dry my roots are visibly lifted and I can achieve bigger hair a lot easier with this product. Probably the best mousse/foam I've used.
Perfect Ends Deep Infusion*: This is the serum type product of the range. This smooths and protects medium textured hair from heat. This aims to actually absorb into your hair instead of just coating the hair which a lot of serums do. There are two types of the Perfect Ends product, one for fine hair which is a spray and one for thick hair which I have. This is a lightweight serum/spray which I feel isn't quite enough for my hair. I suppose I've been used to Moroccan Oil which is very thick so I've been spoilt! It still made my hair feel shiny and soft but I don't think I'll be swapping my Moroccan Oil for it just yet though.
I thought I'd include a photo of me before I went out last night, I used the Shampoo, Condtion, Deep Condtioner, Styling Spray and Root Lift Roam from the Full Repair range and managed to get my hair to possibly be the biggest I've ever got it. I know this isn't the best of photos but hopefully you can see where I'm coming from! I don't like saying products work without showing you guys evidence!
I apologise for A: the funny colour of this picture, B: My awful skin and C: The fact that my face and chest don't match, I promise you they did in real life.
John Frieda have also put two new styling videos on their Youtube channel in which they use the Full Repair range. I've decided to include the video of a how to get Big Beachy Waves. I usually like to create a big wavy hair on myself so I thought it might be quite useful as this how I use the products to get big hair! I will be doing a how I style my hair video soon if anyone's interested!
So there we go, part 2 of my review of the John Frieda Full Repair range. It really is a great range which has some gems which I would definitely recommend. Again the products are 3 for 2 in Boots so you can stock up! The prices for the products are: Styling Spray £5.99, Root Lift Foam: £5.99 and Deep Infusion £6.99. Have you used the John Frieda range? What are your favourite products?
